This paper investigates a polarimetric fiber optic strain sensor embedded in concrete. A comparison is made between a table version and a recently developed integrated version. The problems and concerns of successfully embedding optical fiber into the harsh cementitious environment are discussed. Experimental data is presented and compared to a simple theoretical model of stress induced birefringence.
